Hi, I'm new here.

Posted (edited)

Hi, my name is Jade and I'm new. 

I am a survivor or many traumas that I'm not fully comfortable saying just yet. I found this site searching google for groups either around me I could attend in person, or online. Turns out the closest in person group is 3 hours away from me. So I am very grateful to have found AS. 
I am 28 years old. I'm Christian, although I've fallen pretty far away from my faith over the years. I'm a photographer and martial arts instructor. I'm married with no kids, just a couple fur babies and one feather. 
I come from a large family and I'm the oldest of 11 kids, all from the same parents.
My goal in joining AS is to find a community where I feel safe, heard and can find healing and some peace after years of being just "OK".  
I'm excited and a little scared to get started! I'm really excited to have someone other than my husband to talk too. I love him dearly and although he really does mean well, he isn't always the most helpful. 

I look forward to getting to know everyone,
~ Jade

Hello Jade,

Welcome to AfterSilence. I am very sorry for the many traumas that you have gone thru. It's quite ok to take your time in deciding what you want or don't want to share. You will never be pressured to do so. Our members are understanding and kind and I am glad you found us. I encourage you to look around the site as the first step on feeling comfortable, it's how many of us get our start here at AfterSilence. Reading can give you some a-ha moments that suddenly make you feel less alone. I know it has for me.

It was a big step to reach out and decide you deserve better than just ok. You do. I wish you many more forward steps on this journey that we call healing.

Mary
